Go Smart Card

Switch to McGill's m-ticket or GoSmart

We will soon no longer be issuing paper tickets for 1 week tickets.

McGill's m-ticket app and GoSmart card is the faster and more convenient way to travel! We no longer sell weekly student tickets, 4 week and 10 week tickets on bus, and soon you will no longer be able to buy paper 1 week tickets, these will only be available using McGill's m-tickets or GoSmart card; meaning purchasing your GoZone ticket before you travel using your debit/credit or PayPal.

Single, return and all-day tickets will not be affected for the foreseeable future - however we would recommend switching for convenience and a speedier journey!

Wondering what will work best for you?

This allows you to download McGill's free m-ticket app on your iPhone or Android, and buy you GoZone tickets using your credit/debit card or PayPal, simply activate your ticket when you wish to use it, and scan as you board! You can gift a ticket to another phone too, great for the kids going out!

Not got a smart phone? Our free GoSmart card allows you to buy your travel online, before you board! Simply register for your free GoSmart card, once you receive it in the post, you can buy your GoZone ticket online. Tap your card as you board the bus, it activates the first time you use it.

You can switch for:

Quicker boarding times
No need to carry cash
It's just tap & go

Contactless has arrived across all McGill's services!

Pay for your single, return and all-day tickets via your contactless card, mobile or even Apple watch! It's the faster way to pay for your travel.

Now you don't need to search for change, and if our GoZone tickets don't suit you, then contactless is the way forward! Buy your single, returns and all-day tickets with the tap of your card or phone!
